I've read on Vae Victis that this issue of ATO contains some material for Beyond Waterloo: what exactly? Thanks.

There's a set of additional rules in the magazine itself, with counters in a small stick that you have to specifically request when you order:

-- There are special variant rules (with counters) for promoting units to guard status among the Prussians, British and Russians, with the inclusion of the French Middle Guard as similarly eligible.

-- There's a variant (with counters) covering the Bourbon Royalists, covering the location of the fled court and its ability to raise a corps of supporters should the war last.

-- There's a new scenario that reflects Napoleon's best-case situation.

-- There are also a couple of errata counters to correct a pair of French leaders (just the portraits).

So you want the magazine *and* the counters, because there's good stuff in there. And beyond that, the games on Narva and Poltava are worthwhile; this was a very good "bang for your buck" issue.

In short, if you really like BW, you'll really want to pick this up.

Also note there's a new article index wiki here that tracks such things, at least in broad strokes:
